In West Africa, Oxfam strives to improve the lives of people who’ve suffered from years of war, flooding and famine. Their strategy has seen them work with community groups and NGOs to tackle poverty more effectively.
You’ll set out the overview and strategic direction for our campaigns work in the region. Having identified priorities and popular issues, you’ll develop and deliver media, communications and advocacy work that puts pressure on the decision makers to take action.
In the process, you’ll lead, enthuse and enable a small team of dedicated staff and a team of external consultants, and also act as the senior spokesperson for our lobbying and media work.
Someone with a thorough knowledge of campaigns and policy work, and particular experience in ‘southern campaigning’ is being sought.
You’ll bring expert knowledge of the internal and external environment, which will enable you to formulate effective strategy against a complex political background.
Highly motivated, you’ll be the kind of person who can inspire people to make a difference.
